This Mom’s reasons for loving this particular toy:
The highest concentration of nerve endings that attach to pacinian corpuscles - feeling vibration - and Meissner corpuscles - feeling light touch - are located where? Lips and fingertips! No wonder they touch and chew on everything! :-)
Since your baby has already begun to develop their sense of touch as early as 16 WEEKS gestation, and this region of the brain is the most significant in terms of all senses early in life (and in later life - think about it, you see blind and deaf elders, but very few who can no longer feel) it makes sense to offer toys with varying textures and complex structure. While these little toys may not be very durable, they sure serve their purpose with infants!
* Arrived in a bag, thankfully with no awful plastic stench!
* Very nice coloration. Not too blah, not too fluorescent.
* Size is perfect for gripping, and structural integrity is such that a smaller hand can collapse the ball (like the bigger purple one) enough to grab hold of it.
* Since they are lead-free and BPA-free, they are safe for little gummers.
* Light weight and easy to toss around to discover cause and effect. Try putting a ball in baby’s hand while you hold them and let it drop into/on to something that makes noise...the game never ends!
* Great for working on object permanence as well as color naming and recognition. We loved playing “Where’s the (color name) ball?” by hiding the balls under a box or blanket and squealing when little mister found the right one. 😊
Research proves that the more varied your child’s tactile experiences are, the more open they are to instruction (higher academic performance), their instances of anxiety dramatically reduce (fewer tantrums!), and their ability to maintain and build on the vast network of synapses they were given at birth is improved. So, in short, help your baby’s somatosensory system be all it can be by offering not just your affectionate touch, but a serious of fascinating new objects on a regular basis - like these fun, simple toys!
I hope you found this helpful and not too boring, lol! Unfortunately, by the time I got around to a review several months had passed and our puppy had eaten most of them. The photo is right out of the box.
UPDATE: After many months of mouthing these balls, baby got enough saliva into them (and mommy didn't clean them well enough) that they started to grow mold inside! I noticed the mold when sunlight shone through one of the lighter colored balls. So, they need frequent and thorough cleaning (i.e. make sure plenty of warm vinegar water gets in there, sloshes around, and gets out completely so baby doesn't suck it out). If you have time/energy for that, great. Me? I threw them away.
Pros: My daughter really loves these and is fascinated with each of them. She’s also having fun learning how to throw and catch. And she makes the funniest faces when I rub them on her feet or hands.
Cons: The mold! She chews on these all the time so saliva is collecting inside them. We had to throw a ball out because it had mold covering the inside and she’s only had these for about 6-7 weeks. Is there a way to still make these squishy without the air hole? Interestingly, we’ve only spotted mold in one hall so far and it’s the green one that others have shown moldy pictures of.
We still have the rest of them and will be keeping an eye on them but that’s obviously frustrating to do, and there’s a definite design flaw here.
